I. Building Stronger Customer Relationships with a Personalized First Impression (11:15am-12:00pm ET)
A personalized first impression lays the foundation for the most meaningful customer relationships. Aki Technologies’ 2021 Receptivity Report analyzes A/B tests from real-life campaigns for PepsiCo and Westward Whiskey to explore the impact of personalization on engaging new customers. Attendees will walk away with the inspiration, use cases, and proof points needed to evangelize and leverage personalization as a driving force for establishing meaningful new customer relationships through your digital advertising campaigns.

II. The Untapped Potential of B2B Customer Loyalty Programs (12:00-12:45pm ET)
Retailers, hotels, airlines, and restaurants have long relied on loyalty programs -- including discounts, early access to new products, and exclusive perks that enhance the customer experience and inspire a following -- to strengthen customer loyalty. But only recently has the idea taken root in the B2B world. And it’s about time. In a recent PwC customer survey, almost 60% of B2B customers reported that they had never had an experience with a brand that made them feel special. That’s an alarmingly high percentage of customers who’ve been given no particular reason to stick around. But the implications of customer loyalty for B2B companies are enormous, and, if anything, as crucial as they are for consumer-facing brands. In this session, learn about the benefits of B2B loyalty programs, the various types of B2B loyalty programs, leading examples in the industry, and five actions for making B2B loyalty work for you.
